    Ecological Footprint

    The Ecological Footprint represents the productive area required to provide the renewable resources humanity is using, as well the area required to absorb the waste emitted.

    Emission of acidifying substances

    Emissions of organic matter

    The emission of organic matter is a key environmental problem. Among the pollutants mentioned are Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), and Total Organic Carbon (TOC). BOD, COD and TOC are key indicators of the oxygen content of water.

    Habitats of European interest

    The indicator shows changes in the conservation status of habitats of European interest.
    It is based on data collected under the reporting obligations of Article 17 of the EU Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC).

    Nationally designated areas

    Areas designated under national legislation for the purpose of nature protection including sites such as national parks and nature reserves.

    Soil organic carbon

    Soil organic carbon is the carbon (C) stored in soil organic matter (SOM). Organic carbon (OC) enters the soil through the decomposition of plant and animal residues, root exudates, living and dead microorganisms, and soil biota. SOM is the organic fraction of soil exclusive of nondecomposed plant and animal residues. Nevertheless, most analytical methods do not distinguish between decomposed and non-decomposed residues. SOM is a heterogeneous, dynamic substance that varies in particle size, C content, decomposition rate, and turnover time.

    Species diversity

    Species diversity is a measure of the diversity within an ecological community that incorporates both species richness (the number of species in a community) and the evenness of species' abundances. Species diversity is one component of the concept of biodiversity.

    Species of European interest

    The indicator shows changes in the conservation status of species of European interest.
    It is currently based on data collected under the obligations for monitoring under Article 11 of the EU Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC).

    Species interactions

    Projected spatial mismatches of the Portuguese Dappled White butterfly and its host plants

    Conservation status of habitats by habitat group

    The indicator shows changes in the conservation status of habitats by habitat group.
    It is based on data collected under the reporting obligations of Article 17 of the EU Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC).

    Domestic material consumption by material

    The indicator Domestic Material Consumption (DMC) is defined as the total amount of material directly used in an economy. DMC equals Direct Material Input (DMI) minus exports and Domestic Extraction (DE) plus imports. (source: Eurostat, http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/cache/metadata/EN/tsdpc230_esmsip.htm)

    EU imports from least-developed countries by group of products

    The value at market prices of EU imports from least-developed countries, broken down by group of products (agricultural products, raw materials, energy products and manufactured goods).

    (Eurostat, http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/cache/ITY_SDDS/en/tsdgp230_esmsip.htm, 2014-12-10)

    Fresh Water Resources

    Internal flow and actual external inflow of surface and groundwater in millions of cubic metres per thousands inhabitants.

    Domestic Material Consumption (DMC)

    The indicator "measures the total amount of materials directly used by an economy and is defined as the annual quantity of raw materials extracted from the domestic territory, plus all physical imports minus all physical exports."

    Retrieved from : http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/statistics-explained/index.php/Glossary:Dom... on 29/01/2015

    Physical Trade Balance (PTB)

    The trade surplus or deficit of material resources within an economy, calculated as imports minus exports of raw materials and manufactured products.

    Growing stock in forests available for wood supply

    " Volume of all living trees more than X cm in diameter at breast height (or above buttress if these are higher) measured over bark from ground or stump height to a top stem diameter of Y cm, excluding or including branches to a minimum diameter of Z cm. Excludes: smaller branches, twigs, foliage, flowers, seeds, stump and roots."

    Total wealth estimate ($)

    "The Wealth of Nations dataset provides country level data on comprehensive wealth, adjusted net saving, and non-renewable resource rents indicators, as published in "The Changing Wealth of Nations" (2011)."
    (World Bank, http://data.worldbank.org/data-catalog/wealth-of-nations, 23-01-2015)

    "Total wealth is present value of future consumption that is sustainable, discounted at a rate of time preference of 1.5 percent, over 25 years.

    Depletion Adjusted Saving (DAS) =

    Adjusted net savings, including particulate emission damage (current US$)

    Adjusted net savings are equal to net national savings plus education expenditure and minus energy depletion, mineral depletion, net forest depletion, and carbon dioxide and particulate emissions damage.
    (retrieved 2-2-2014 from Worldbank, http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/NY.ADJ.SVNG.CD)

    Water Exploitation Index (WEI)

    The water exploitation index (WEI) is the mean annual total abstraction of freshwater as percentage of the mean annual total renewable freshwater resource at the country level,.

    Adjusted savings: natural resources depletion (% of GNI)

    Natural resource depletion is the sum of net forest depletion, energy depletion, and mineral depletion.
